28 year old Lauren has completed five seasons of flying aerobatics and three as a certified display pilot in air shows around the UK, completing 33 performances over the space of just four months during the 2015 flying season.

Whilst in Sheffield to present a lecture for the Sheffield branch of the Royal Aeronautical Society on ‘The art of the unusual attitude’, Lauren was invited to the ASTC to see the work we were doing helping to fully-certify the Game Bird 1 aerobatic aircraft. Lauren said she hopes our work will be of great interest to competitive aerobatic pilots across the UK and is watching our project very closely!
